Yesterday was my first day with my new S6 and still assessing either to keep or not cause of the battery concerns. But today seems to be better with some adjustments...but still fiddling around.
But last night I left it charging over night and noticed this morning the phone was pretty hot and the wallpaper changed by itself. I wasn't using the OEM quick charger but my older regular charger. Any comments?
Also...if I have weak 4G signal and connected to a wifi...is it better to turn off the "Mobile Data" which turns the 4G off too?
should do have a permanent wallpaper on my screen except the one that came with the phone, everytime i set a wallpaper of my choice and after some applications and downloads it reverts back to the wallpaper that came with the handset, i have already tried so many times without real success
I have a really annoying issue on my Galaxy S6. If i set a custom wallpaper, you can see the Wallpaper move around a few pixels sometimes. It really annoys me, i couldn't find any setting to disable this "effect". The default wallpapers don't have this issue, only if i set a custom one. How to disable this ?
Is there a way I can transfer a wallpaper image from my samsung galaxy s5 over to my s6 phone. As I deleted the photos from my S5, but only when it was too late I noticed all my photos weren't backed up. One photo of my cat was transferred into a wallpaper and is still on the phone. Is there a way I can now transfer this wallpaper back to a photo or send it to my new s6 mobile?
After updating my Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) to 5.1.1, the homescreen wallpaper always resets to the stock Samsung WP every after reboot. I use themes downloaded from the Theme Store. Everything else remains applied (lockscreen WP, icons, etc.)
flashed a theme but after this i cannot set my wallpaper on the s-view and lock screen to the one I downloaded, the option is just not there. I can only select it when I choose homescreen or homescreen and lockscreen. I reflashed my stock rom but still the same
I want to use a picture from Google photos as wallpaper. The only choice when I go to add wallpaper is to get a photo from my gallery. How do I get it from Google photos into the gallery so I can use it?
I was able to download the Captain America Theme, after the theme store being down, but I want to change the lock screen wallpaper only, but every time I change the wallpaper it only affects the home screen.
My wallpaper changes over night and I don't know why. I don't have it set to live, I don't have an app that changes it and I haven't done the lollipop reset that ive read most people with this problem have done. I keep pushing it off a day until I start hearing good things. So far the update seems to turn your phone into garbage. I've already had to reset my phone once bc it crapped out on me and it's barely a year old so I am not updating.
I have a Galaxy S5 and I have tried changing the lock screen wallpaper using the common method described (ie. tapping on a spot on homescreen and clicking set wallpaper for).The problem is, when I do that, it does not give me the option of homescreen/lockscreen, but says "select wallpaper from" (options: gallary, live wallpapers, wallpapers). When I choose from pics in my gallary, it automatically sets it as homescreen wallpaper (no option for lockscreen).
The only time it works for the lockscreen is when it's in the "wallpaper" folder (the one with preset Samsung wallpapers). I've tried looking for this folder to add pictures to it, but I can't seem to locate the folder.So, where this folder is located or better yet, know of another way in which to set the wallpaper for the lockscreen from the gallery or other folders?
I was looking for Samsung Galaxy S wallpapers online and I found some that are 360x640. I tried to use these on the phone but it makes me crop the picture before I can set it as a wallpaper and I'm only ending up with 40 % of the original wallpaper. what size I need to create them in on photoshop?
I got my S2 a few days back, and am quite impressed with the scrolling background wallpaper. However, I don't understand how to make a wallpaper scrollable. I installed this app called Zedge that lets you download free wallpapers etc. When I choose the image to use as wallpaper, I'm taken to a screen with the following:
- A thumbnail of the image with a resizable orange rectangle. - 2 icons below that - one with 3 panes that looks like it's meant to select a scrolling wallpaper and the second one showing a single pane.
I choose the one on the left that appears to be for scrolling, then I suppose I have to select the area of the image I want. I want the entire image to be used as a wallpaper, so I select the whole thing. (I've also tried selecting only a sub section). I click save. It generates and sets the wallpaper and...it does not scroll. (I have all 7 home screens enabled).
I go back, choose the icon on the right, select a small area of the image and that gets set as a wallpaper. This also does not scroll. I don't want to go install a 3rd party app just to do this. I have tried with Zedge, as well as locally stored pictures from my Picasa albums. Also, how does one change the 3 default pictures in the 'wallpaper gallery'? I can't find them on the SD card.
My new S5 keeps getting its display time out value reset to a value of "()", there is no numeric value between the parenthesis. I switch it back to 15 or 30 and seemingly randomly it gets changed. It happened just now after plugging it in to a charger.
Is there some way to see what changes it? Its getting super annoying, happens 2-3 times a day. I run very few apps... and most of those I ran on my old thunderbolt with no issues. Several I also run on my wifes new S5 but she has no problem with hers.
I was deleting some apps on my phone this morning (don't remember which ones) and I must have deleted one I needed because since then all of screens are not set up the way I set them up. It kept/keep asking me to use Touch Wiz Easy Home when I press the home button.All the widgets are bigger and all my apps are in the additional area. How do I get my screens back? I am in the process of backing everything up in case I do any type of reset.How do I back up my text messages outside of screen shots and emailing them to myself?
Have a Samsung S6, i use the same wallpaper for both my home screen and lock screen but everytime i change the wallpaper for both, the lock screen has the full image and the home screen is always slightly smaller by about 4% or 8%.
Any way to change the resolution of the S6 from QHD down to 1080p. I've found the Nomone Resolution Changer, but I was wondering if there was a more trustworthy way about getting the resolution to get to 1080p.
I just purchased my first ever samsung phone the other day and I notice the text message notification icon looks 100% identical to the email notification icon. This is extremely annoying to me, can that be changed? I'd prefer to be able to tell those apart when glancing at notifications.
edit: using nova launcher atm but can't seem to find a setting to change this in nova or touchwiz.
I have many apps frozen and I have tried unfreezing many of them one at a time to try and set multiple lock screen wallpapers but every time I hit Done after selecting the wallpapers, I get a message saying "App not installed".
If I only choose one wallpaper, I can change it just fine, but multiple wallpaper selection doesn't work. Which app controls the lock screen multiple wallpaper selection?
I have a galaxy s6 edge running Android lollipop 5.1.1 and the paralex or 3d effect they call wallpaper motion effect isn't working. I have read that it doesn't work at all on 5.1.1 but all so there has been an update that makes it work. It definitely isn't working on my s6 edge.
